FDA consultants may have previously worked for Bayer

Posted on January 25th, 2012 No Comments

A conflict of interest has arisen in the case of Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits regarding members of the committee.

It has allegedly been said that members of the Food and Drug Administration who were in favor to keep the Yasmin and Yaz on the shelves had previously worked for Bayer Pharmaceuticals or received some type of financial backing from the company.

This claims came after a government watchdog group wrote a letter claiming that a new hearing should be held in order to address these alleged claims. In December, 11 out of a 15 person committee voted that the advantages of Yasmin and Yaz outweighed the risks.

This vote meant that Yasmin and Yaz could remain on the market and avoid a recall. It was later found that at least four members of the committee had some type of tie to Bayer.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a serious health side effect such as a blood clot as a result of using Yasmin or Yaz birth control, you need representation on your side at this time that may be able to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.

Advisory panel sought for Yaz study

Posted on September 28th, 2011 No Comments

The FDA released a note warning of the increased risk of blood clot associated with new generation birth control, Yaz or Yasmin.

It did not say for sure that using the birth control will lead to this, but regulators stated that they are concerned of higher risks. Yasmin and Yaz are both very popular birth control pills and they both contain an ingredient, drospirenone, which may cause Deep-vein thrombosis.

This occurs when a blood clot happens in an extremity, such as the leg, and they become very dangerous if the clot moves to another vital organ. Symptoms include chest pain, leg pain and difficulty breathing. Preliminary results show that women who take drospirenone-containing birth control pills are 50 percent more likely to develop these blood clots than woman who took other contraceptives.

If you or a loved one has been taking either of these birth control pills and suffered a blood clot without being warning of the increased risk, contact the Yasmin blood clot lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.

Plaintiffs in Yasmin lawsuit case ask for Bayer documents

Posted on December 14th, 2010 No Comments

Plaintiffs in the Yasmin lawsuit are asking the U.S. District Judge that is presiding over all of the lawsuits like this across the country.

In November, a plaintiff in the case asked for the Bayer production documents from more than 100 different nations, but Bayer tried for a protective order in December claiming that the the plaintiff was only going to use the papers from leverage instead of evidence.

The Yasmin lawsuits claim that the birth control gave women negative health side effects such as disorders in the blood stream. An attorney for Bayer said that documents that have been produced by the company would be more than 7,000 pages long.

If you or a loved one has suffered from negative health side effects after taking Yasmin and were unaware of these side effects when prescribed to the medicine, you may be able to receive compensation for your pain.
